Logginh Function

Hi,
I use a simple static funtion to output errors, trace messages...
However when i call the same function more than one I get an error that
the text file is used by another application..

public static void echo(string logMessage){
StreamWriter w = File.AppendText ("log.txt");
DateTime d = DateTime.Now;
w.WriteLine(d.T oString()+logMe ssage);
w.Flush();
w.Close();
w = null;
}

//call the fucntion Form1.echo ("error message");

What am I doing wrong? Is there a better way...

Are you possibly calling the same method from different threads?

Steven, Form1.echo is used by several classes in the same application,
it get called from many instances of these classes.

I think you aren't Close()ing the file. A better way, would be to do
something like this (compiles but untested):

public static void echo(string logMessage){
using(StreamWri ter w = File.AppendText ("log.txt")) {
w.Write(DateTim e.Now);
w.WriteLine(log Message);
}
}

Check out the "using" keyword in msdn somewhere. It's really nice for
stuff like this. I also changed the date+string to two different writes
with the idea that no string concatenation is better (someone correct me
if I'm wrong).

Hello, I have a question about casting a function pointer.

In my actual code, I will code the function to take...
